Call for Submissions – Vol. 2, No. 1 How are Young People Changing the World?

Deadline: 24 December 2017

The Republic is now accepting submissions for its February/March 2018 issue, in which scholars and experts will critically discuss youth in the 21st century, amid wider debates on global and regional demographic and fertility transitions.

We expect each essay to elaborate on key issues relevant to today’s young people, particularly young people in African societies. In light of this, we are especially interested in insightful thoughts on the youth as forces of social, economic and political change; the emergence and evolution of youth culture(s); insight into youth-led civil action or resistance groups; and critical thoughts on the intersections of race, gender and age.

We are looking for analytical and engaging essays, lectures, speeches and book reviews that, without sacrificing academic rigour, can serve as authoritative/definitive subject-matter guides to both scholars and professionals that may have limited knowledge on African affairs.

Overall, we expect submissions ranging between 1,500 words (minimum) and 6,000 words (maximum), and will be accepting first drafts until Sunday 24 December, 2017.

Please send all submissions as MS-Word documents to [email protected].
